Study of Zero Waste Management in Indian Construction IndustryAuthor : R. Yoganandam and Udhayasakthi
Volume 6 No.2 July-December 2017 pp 31-35
Construction and demolition waste management has become one of the major environmental problems in many municipalities The building industry is consuming a considerable amount of resources, from the most common material sand to the valuable natural assets like timber. If the life cycle of the material on site, from its transportation and delivery to the end fate, is closely examined, it is generally known that there is a relatively large portion of the materials being wasted because of poor material control on building sites.
